On Saturday, I went for a lovely little potter in town in search of a dress for my aunt's wedding. As I mentioned yesterday, I found said dress- but in Mango, I also found the most brilliant jacket. I wasn't meant to be shopping for just random clothes- but could I resist? Could I hell...

I took it to Chepstow for a spin, and forced J to play photographer while I posed against the old city walls- so you know, thanks to him for getting these. He's a good egg, really.
The jacket was £29.99, down from £45. I'm still not entirely convinced that I'm cool enough for it, but I love it. The background to the print is actually a sort of blue-y charcoal grey. It looks perfect with jeans and an oversized white tee, and I'm planning to pair it with shorts and a white shirt to travel to Barcelona next week. I also think it will look great over cream dresses (not that I own any), and possibly with one of my work dresses. I'm basically just going to try to work it into as many outfits as I possibly can.
It's perfect for the British summer weather. A light jacket (or blazer, depending on which way you look at it) which is perfect for lobbing on as you run out of the door, heavy enough to keep you warm when the weather is a bit dodgy, light enough to basically act as a cardigan when the weather is about as good as we get.
As the picture below shows- clearly I'm delighted with it.
As an aside- would you like to see more outfit posts from me? I can't promise future outfits won't all involve stripes...
